I couldn't see this posted anywhere, so sorry if it has been.

I was looking into buying a Medinose allergy reliever which is currently reduced to £39.99 on AMAZON.

Whilst researching it's effectiveness and price came across a link for the Lloydspharmacy Allergy Reliever which was only £14.99 and meant I could go and physically get one rather than waiting for it to be delivered.

Popped into Lloyds this morning and came away with the Allergy Reliever and Ionising Air Purifier for £19.99. Can't see that the offer for both units is online, but it definately in store.

Clinically proven to relieve allergy symptoms

Simple and easy to use
Uses light therapy for relief of allergy symptoms

Millions of people in the UK suffer from allergic rhinitis and / or hayfever.
The suffering is often a lot worse in the summer months due the presence
of pollen and sufferers can be become desperate to relieve the symptoms
of their allergies.

The Lloydspharmacy Allergy Reliever is an innovative and effective treatment
for the relief of those irritating symptons associated with allergic rhinitis -
for example, watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing. It is safe, quick and easy
to use and some people may feel an improvement after just a few treatments.


The Lloydspharmacy Allergy Reliever uses red light therapy to suppress the
cells that release histamine, thereby relieving the symptoms of hayfever.

I'm not expecting miracles, but if helps to relieve my little girls symptoms then it will be worth every penny. She's been taking prescription meds since the end of Feb and they seem to be having little or no effect!

You put the 2 prongs up your nose and switch the machine on and that's it. However, you do end up looking like rudolph!!:-D

I got this a week ago - products are 9.99 (ioniser) and 14.99 with a £5 discount if you buy both. Yet to be convinced that either works - has anyone found any scientific evidence for the light device?
#9
simple cure(well aid) for hayfever is smear a little vaseline around your nostrils as this catches and holds the allergens before they enter your nasal passage. Cheap and relatively affective!
#10
Can anyone actually vouch for this product? Don't wanna go spend £15 and get bright red nose for nothing! lol.

I usually survive on the citorazine tablets but would rather not this year as i'm pregnant so don't want to be taking any more pills than i have to. There doens't seem to be any warnings against using it during pregnancy and i'll double check with the pharmasist before buying!

Better than wasting £40 on the Amazon version http://www.amazon.co.uk/Medinose-45030-Hayfever-Allergy-Treatment/dp/B000BI69UQ/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I169BDVGXMRKI5&colid=17TFPXVAXOF39

Long thread on this from April on MSE HERE
#17
My mom and sister got these last year for their hay-fever, they both swear it works. Both themselves and other family members have noticed their symptoms get worse if they forget to use it and my mom finds she doesn't need half as many antihistamines now.
#18
I'm interested in this one, but I'll have to do some research first. I suffer with hayfever v,v,v,v,v,v,v,v,v, badly but don't take medication as it reacts with my medication that I take for epilepsy. Before anyone says try such or such tablets I've tried 3 different ones and they all caused me to have fits. Doctors not to helpful as all they say is it's trial and error. So the next one I try may or may not effect.
For the last 5 years or so I have suffered badly with my heyfever, but maybe this is what I've been looking for
#19
I saw the original thread over at MSE, and got one. Hayfever often makes me housebound - it isn't just a runny nose and a few sneezes - its sometimes so bad that I can hardly see and suffer as much as I would with the flu. I normally take the anti-histamine tablets, which do reduce it - but I still have to watch going outside.

I started using this thing about three weeks ago. Apparently it does take time to work. However, this is the first May I can remember that I've been able to sit out in the garden for hours without so much as sneezing. I haven't been taking tablets, and it is a bit early to tell...but I will definitely keep using this as I have found the results encouraging. The science behind it is that the waves that are released restrict the cells from releasing histamines - which cause the reactions. For anyone who gets hayfever as bad as I do, I'd definitely give it a go - just expect results in weeks, not days (and after using it 3 times a day).

Forgot to mention, this was also on This Morning last year, 'Dr Chris' (think that's his name) recommended it after testing it out on some people in his office and found it worked.

man, im gunna need to get one of those! Hayfever drivin me nuts this time of year!
#22
If you want to see the scientific research etc - Google rhinophototherapy !
#23
i have this. I get hayfever from about feb/March until about september october which is just fantastic. This doesnt fix the problem, but it DOES alleviate the symptoms. If only there was a way to cure the itchy mouth symdrome :(

on a side note, I have to say 3 a day benadryl are the tablets which work before for me, and I have managed to get them from the doctor now by calling them by their main ingredient (acravistine iirc) so I have a 2 month supply of 3 a day for 7 quid. Now that is a bargain ;)
#24
Thanks for posting this, a few members of my family suffer from hayfever myself included.

On a sidenote though, apparently there is an injection that you have have that stops you from getting hayfever, but you have to ask your GP about it as they do not advertise it. I dont like injections so have yet to try it.

Hmm... I wonder what happens if you just plug your nostrils and stay indoors? Has anyone seen a double-blind type trial?
#26
My hayfever is currently also affecting my skin in the fact it makes my psoriasis flare up, i'm guessing this only treats the eyes/nose side of this?

Does anyone know how quick Lloyds take to deliver this. The terms and conditions said they aim to despatch in 28 days!!!

Got one of these last year & it worked for me. Rarely used any tablets & didn't need a nasal spray. Used once a day last thing.

Gave the rest of my family a good laugh too.

Was this achieved by the conventional "up the nose method" or the special lumoruk look into the beam method?:-D

Seriously though, my daughter hated using it this morning, wasn't impressed with the red nose! However, she's used it a second time this afternoon and says her eyes aren't so itchy.

She hasn't noticed any effect on her stuffy nose, tickly throat/mouth yet, but maybe that will improve with continued use. My GP has advised that we use this in conjunction with her current medication and that he will review her again in 2 weeks.

Like i said before, I'm not expecting great things from this, but if it only relieves her symptoms slighlty I will think it was worth every penny.

Has anyone got the ionisor thingy that was on offer with it? I've put it on this evening in her room, but not sure what it's supposed to be doing. It seems to be sitting there humming?

Haven't read through all the threads here, so hope this has not been posted yet, but the best cure (bit late now to try, sorry) is to take a spoon of LOCAL honey a day in the winter time (all year round actually helps best) and is an effective, and trialled, I hasten to add, way to combat and cure hay fever. It MUST be local honey though, so not the cheap stuff from TESCO, as it contains localised pollen that the bees have collected and aids in the"anti-dote". Hope this helps, it certainly helped me.

Yeah I tried that for a couple of years, also tried taking the local honey throughout the year to get the best exposure.... but didnt work for me sadly :(

Hi All... new on here - great site :-D
Bought one of these last week. Hope it works!!! Didn't know about the red nose bit though!
Does your nose only go red whilst using the thing?..... Hope so! :)

I've used the ionisor before it basically makes all the particles in the air heavy by giving them a negative charge so they fall to the ground, but if you stand behind the fan and the particles settle on you the next time you touch something conductive ZAAAPPP! I was sat on my computer which is on a metal desk, every 5 seconds ZAP!....ZAP!....ZAP!.... was like what the hell is going on! :oops:

lumoruk the red-nosed cowboy
Had a very shiny gun
And if you ever saw it
You would turn around and run

All of the other cowboys
Used to run away from him
They never let poor lumoruk
Sit with them to drink some gin

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
The Sheriff came to say
"lumoruk with your gun so bright
Won't you shoot my wife tonight?"

Then how the cowboys loved him
As they shouted out with glee
"lumoruk the red-nosed cowboy
You'll go down in history!"
